Nice Cruise

Sail Date: December 13, 2008

Reviewed: 8 years ago

Traveled As: Couple

Room Type: Oceanview

It was a good cruise despite the cool weather. The food was good and the service was excellent. Our only real complaint was that the ship is difficult to find your way around. There should have been "directional" signs on each level pointing the way to the two main dining rooms. I can't begin to tell you how many times we got lost trying to find our way! We heard many other passengers complain of the same problem. There were 650 children on this cruise and they were not annoying at all. We were pleased about that. The other thing that was a little bothersome was the constant photographers trying to take your picture all the time. Even when we said "NO", they snapped away. At $19.95 per photo it was a bit pricey.
We didn't buy any.

Dirty city. Constant sellers trying to get you to buy junk. Seeing the "blow Hole" was really a waste of time! Wouldn't eat or drink anything there!
